About Les Zygomates


Since opening in 1994, Les Zygomates (pronounced lay-zee-go-matt, roughly translating to “the muscles in the face that make you smile”) has earned a distinguished reputation for its inviting atmosphere, superb cuisine and its award-winning wine list.

Its large dining area seats 150 people comfortably with seating for 50 guests in the private dining room.  Both lunch (served Monday – Friday) and dinner (served six nights a week, directed by our Executive Chef, Guara Pimenta – guara@winebar129.com) boast a moderately priced menu, with specials available.  The Bar hosts a dollar Oyster happy hour  $1 OYSTERS, Monday-Friday 3pm-7pm .  The “Jazz Side” features live Jazz and Blues performances to accompany your dining experience Monday through Saturday evenings.

Whether your plans call for an intimate evening for two or an uninhibited celebration for many, Les Zygomates selection of fine wines and exceptional Bistro cuisine await you.
